coalition? >> the city bike fully is an internal program and they are comfortable with this recommendation for this year. i'm not sure that we had any specific contact with the bike coalition with the bikes on this additional bikes are being procured this summer. if the department finds a need for additional bikes they can come ban the back and request more. >> commissioner breed? >> thank you, i have a few concerns over all about the program. i wanted to ask some questions. i know this has been in the works for some time. i wanted to ask about the the cost per bicycle rack at san francisco state versus the cost for the general bikefor example it comes out to $204 for bike rack versus $900 in general. so i just wanted some explanation of that? >> this is an excellent point. thank you for mentioning it. there are several different reasons why the difference is so great. san francisco state, the rack, the funding is only to procure the racks and for the actual direct staff time of a ground crews staff member to install the rack. whereas mta includes overhead cost procured by the sfmta procu
